The MINISTER OP THE INTERIOR.

Mr. Speaker, I think the remarks which my hon. friend (Mr. Oliver) has made are worthy of this consideration at least, that the question as to whether the extension of time which is asked for in respect' to the other railway lines is a different matter altogether from that which the committee discussed and decided should be again considered by the committee. I would suggest to my hon. friend that he withdraw his motion now and renew it in a couple of days. In the meantime the hon. Minister of Railways and Canals (Hon. Mr. Blair) and the Chairman of the Railway Committee may confer with him and look into the question so that when it comes before the House
again we will know the exact position of the matter.
Motion withdrawn.

Topic:   GREAT NORTHERN TRANSIT COMPANY.
